While the 2014 Women’s Economic Security Act represented great progress for women and families in Minnesota, there is more work to do. Public policy and workplaces can and must do a better job of supporting women as essential contributors to their families’ economic security and Minnesota’s economy.
From wages and benefits to work-family balance to caring for children and families, we are calling on policy makers in Minnesota to address the challenges we face – which will improve the lives not only of women but of all Minnesotans.
Reducing barriers is not just the right thing to do, it builds a stronger economic foundation for all of us. Providing equal opportunities and pay for women who make up half of the state’s workforce is critical to our state’s economic future.
With your involvement and support, we can build on our 2014 success and continue taking significant action in 2015 to bring down economic barriers for women and build a more productive, stronger Minnesota together.
The Minnesota Coalition for Women’s Economic Security Executive Committee consists of the following four organizations working in Minnesota across the policy spectrum to increase gender equality:
